Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN), the world’s leading producer of precision dispensing equipment, will be showcasing a number of breakthrough applications in woodworking technology at the 2008 International Woodworking Fair, taking place August 20-23 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. At booth 8362, Nordson will feature a number of live product demos and displays focused on woodworking, including:
Profile Wrapping Technology
— Nordson’s new SF 300 strip feed profile wrapping nozzle allows feeding strips of veneer in addition to the standard veneer from rolls, while retaining the traditional Nordson PW nozzle features and benefits. Standard features include easy incorporation into existing profile wrapping machines, closed system design and easy adjustment of coating width and position of head.
— The PWII 350 adjustable profile wrapping slot nozzle provides production flexibility through a configurable number of modules and exchangeable nozzle assemblies. The nozzle allows for easy adjustment of coating width and head position, even during production. Used as part of a closed system with Nordson VersaPail(TM) bulk melters or VersaBlue(R) melters, maintenance can be minimized and material usage optimized.
— DPW adjustable profile wrapping slot nozzles maximize adhesive control with a dual deckling design that adjusts from the center of the nozzle out. Independent adjustment allows precise adhesive placement and consistency.
— Nordson’s EB60V adjustable width edge banding gun offers high- quality, versatile adhesive application across a wide range of adhesives. The gun’s innovative slot technology quickly and easily adjusts to a 2.4 inch maximum to apply adhesive to either board or band.
— For soft forming production, an application-specific nozzle can be attached to the EB60V edge banding guns. The custom-made nozzle applies adhesive directly to the profiled edge.
— Nordson’s innovative SureFoam(TM) foaming system combines hot melt adhesive with inert gas to create a homogenous closed-cell foam. The use of foamed adhesive in cabinet assembly can reduce adhesive consumption up to 50 percent, while improving gap filling in drawer bottom and cabinet back attachment.
Mitered Door Demonstration
— Nordson’s booth will feature an active display/demonstration of Allwood Machinery’s mitered cabinet door machine, demonstrating the efficient use of PUR adhesive in the mortise of mitered door stiles and rails. The system helps increase productivity while reducing open joints and the potential of warranty claims.
“We are very excited about the wide range of applications we will be showcasing at the IWF this year,” said Dave Deibel, industry sales manager for Nordson’s wood & construction business. “These breakthrough adhesive technologies are helping OEMs develop exciting new applications that can help manufacturers increase their production efficiency and raise profitability.”
